I FINALLY spotted a LIVING hedgehog here in France!! I have only seen ones that have been hit and smushed on the road! I used to have one as a pet for almost 5 years and they are among my FAVORITE critters!! So, I was super excited to see one at night scurrying across the grass area in our apartment complex. It was around 11 pm and I caught a glimpse of him making a beeline... I ran over to him and he stopped dead in his tracks... With a shirt I had in my hands... I picked him up and called my hubby over to take a look.. I didn't get a photo but he was a pretty good size compared to the one I had... about twice the size.. My hedgie was an African pymgy and maybe the European species are a bit larger... Anyhow... it was VERY exciting!!! Below are two pictures I pulled off the net... One of a European hedgehog and one is an armadillo from Texas..
